COOPERSTOWN – Repairs and repainting on the Main Street side of Cooperstown’s Village Hall will begin sometime this week, a week early than expected, according to Trustee Lou Allstadt, who chairs the trustees’ Building Committee.
During the renovations – they include the front steps, the columns, porch and front doors – library patrons and people accessing the Cooperstown Art Association, village offices and the police station must do so through the building’s Fair Street entrance, Allstadt said.
This summer’s work will be the most visible to date of a complete Village Hall redo, but internal repairs, added insulation and other projects have been underway for some time. This stage, an estimated $92,000 job, is being done by National Building & Restoration, Utica.
Allstadt said he expects the work to take 6-8 weeks.
